No 3D for HP7.1?

Warner Bros. was quoted in today's Variety announcing that, contrary to previous publicity, they will not be releasing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 3D on November 19. However, they said that Part 2 would be released on July 15, 2011 in both 2D and 3D.

Studio said Friday that it wasn't able to convert the film in its entirety and meet the "highest standards of quality" in time for next month's release.

"We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned," the studio said. "We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate "Harry Potter" experience."

It may be significant that they did not say whether they might release in 3D at some future time, only that it wouldn't be seen in 3D on November 19.

I'm fine with this decision. Tho maybe they'll re-release it a few weeks before Part II release. You know, just because. :p

Great news for Tangled.

Let us raise a glass to "Cats & Dogs 2" for scaring Warner out of extraneous 3D-conversion releases for marketing's sake.
It will have sacrificed itself for a noble cause. :)

"great news for tangled"??

"Harry Potter" will be an event! Sorry to see it end, frankly. I've found it to be very entertaining. I dare say it was better than the whole Star Wars saga.
